I finaly took off the damn sway bar links. YAHOO! Love that flex should have done it sooner. Couldn't bang off the top of the links so just tied it all out of the way. Of course now I am pulling the brake hose to the limit. What brake hose can I get that is longer? This is for an 89yj

Pro Comp and Superlift make some that are stainless steel braided hose that are DOT legal in lengths up to 6" longer than stock. Rubicon Express make some that are several times longer than stock. Expect to spend around $100 for a set (2 for the front and one for the rear). It is a good upgrade - the stainless will not bulge under heavy braking like the rubber and will improve the pedal feel.

I removed the rear trac bar and front sway bars but left the front trac bar on. My Jeep flexes much better now and still drives very well. The onyl brake cable I had a problem with was my rear pass side ebrake cable, it was caught behind the exhaust hanger when the dealership I bought my Jeep from put the exhaust on it before i bought it. Anyway, we managed to get it around the exahaust hanger and now my cables are all long enough (excpet now I'm in the process of lifting her so I don't know if they still will be) if any of your cables are too short, try repositioning the attachments to give you more room for flex. The other (and better but mroe expensive) option is to buy longer brake cables. If you plan on lifting your Jeep you're prolly gonna need longer cables anyway so now might be a good time to get that upgrade behind you.

I've got a set of SS lines for a 4" lift that I am looking to sell. Front axle, both sides.

Goodridge also makes a very nice set of extended brake lines. And they're quite a bit cheaper than the others. I think around $45 for the two front ones. It depends on what size lift you're installing as to which brake line you'll want to go with. If you're just doing a 4" or so, the Goodridge ones should be fine. But I did an SOA and found them a bit short.
